Buru's Beginnings

In 2013, I had my first child – my daughter, Olive. A few weeks after that, Olive and I had a mutual meltdown at a restaurant when I couldn’t feed her while wearing a high-neck dress. Suddenly I needed easier access, more flexible fits, and anything “dry clean only” was just waiting for a spill. Necessity was the real mother of invention, but soon we found it was more than just moms looking for effortless-yet-functional polish.

Growing Buru

Over ten years later, our family has built a brand for women in all stages of life. Today our small-batch production begins with sketches that still originate in my notebook and the deadstock fabrics we source year-round.
Every Buru piece is inspired by the clothes my grandmother and mom wore (and that I still have!), but designed for the life I lead today (Raising 3 kids! Visiting our factories! Date night with Brett!). There’s no compromise when it comes to styles that work whether you’re chasing a little one or presenting to the board.

Processes and Partnerships

While we work with a handful of international factories, we also own our own micro factory in Los Angeles. That investment in ourselves was a game-changer. Just like in the movies, we can sketch something in our attic atelier, have a lunchtime conversation with our head of production, Antonio, and see a sample of it by the end of the day. Our other factories can follow suit, each pitching in with their specialties.
